You know that sensational feeling you get when you walk into a party or event? When everyone around you is looking at you like you’re wearing something special. That is what it’s like when you look your absolute best!

Plan, Plan, Plan!

Looking festive for any occasion requires a bit of planning. Think about the kind of event you’re going to. Is it casual, semi-formal, formal, or fancy? This will help you secure the best type of dress for the night. 

Then, the type of dress you’ll be wearing should also influence the kind of accessories you’ll need. For instance, if it’s casual, then a simple but fun necklace will do just fine. But if you’re going to a fancy party or masquerade, go for something more glamorous like women’s designer earrings.

When purchasing accessories for any event (especially if it’s formal), try to buy pieces that are neutral in color so they can be matched with any outfit. Gold accessories have always been a classic choice, but let’s try out silver and rose gold instead this year.

4 Basic Appearance Guidelines For Special Events

1. Match the Tone of the Event

If it’s casual, you don’t want to be wearing a tuxedo or ball gown. On the other hand, you shouldn’t show up at a backyard barbecue in shorts and sneakers if it’s formal.

2. Wear Formal Attire

You should wear formal attire so that you can move around quickly during the ceremony (you don’t want to have to go back inside after cutting the cake) and so that you’re not confined to a chair for most of the evening. The same thing goes for women: If it’s a cocktail hour before dinner, use the opportunity to change into something more comfortable for the main meal.

3. Check Your Wardrobe

One of the best ways to feel confident for most women is to check your closet and assess what you have. The key is always to stick with what makes you feel good. If something doesn’t fit properly or match your outfit, don’t wear it. You wouldn’t wear a bathing suit that didn’t match your swimsuit cover-up or a pajama shirt with jeans — why would you wear an outfit that doesn’t work with the rest of your look?

4. Accessorize Wisely

Accessories are an essential part of what makes any woman feel fabulous. They add color and detail while helping us achieve a polished and glamorous look. Look through your closet and find bold pieces that can brighten up your look and make you feel ready for anything.

When you have a special occasion that requires a high-end look, there’s no need to worry about coming up with an outfit on your own. Take a look at your closet and the wide variety of different options you will have for whatever the occasion might be. And if you want something new, scour through this list of luxury menswear retailers and take advantage of all the designer selections they offer to help you look your best on all those upcoming special nights.

Are You Ready For Your Next Special Occasion?

The wedding season is an exciting and busy time. There are dress fittings, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, birthdays to attend, and of course, the actual weddings—which means lots of party dresses! 

The great thing about the gala is that it can be about whatever you want it to be about. If you only have a few parties left to go to this year—maybe even just one!—a gorgeous white dress with sparkling accents can do the trick. 

Perhaps you’re traveling for all the engagements and have a lot of plane travel in store for you? A cocktail dress is your best friend for those weekends away. Or maybe you want an excuse to wear a fancy ball gown in public. In any case, these timeless looks from last season aren’t going anywhere any time soon. Let’s get to shopping!
